i really liked this post from ali edwards about making it through hard things. it is a good reminder about choosing love, even when life doesn't turn out the way that you expect or want it to. i think that i choose love each and every day, but sometimes it is harder to do than others when anger and fear creep in. i also love ali's post because it inspires me to write letters to malena. what i love about how ali writes and documents stories is that she provides a connection to her thoughts that her kids may never have otherwise known. i would love to do the same for malena. reading "glitter and glue" over the weekend reminded me of how important it is to help malena know me in ways other than mom.
last reminder, thursday at 9pm is last chance to enter for the card giveaway -- good luck peeps! xo
